11/27/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Saturday

A lot of people will be at neighborhood malls to catch a holiday deal and get do your shopping for the holidays.  If you take a couple of easy steps, you can save yourself a lot of money and calories at the food court when you need a bite to eat.

FYI- Here are some examples of the calorie counts you may come across at the mall.

-Jamba Juice Peanut Butter Moo Juice- 860 calories

-Dunkin Donuts Chocolate Chip Muffin- 590 calories

-Krispy Kreme glazed crème filled donut- 360 calories

-Starbucks Grande White Chocolate Mocha- 480 calories

Is that bite worth those calories?

If you have to buy in the food court, try to find a deli vendor.  Split a sandwich with a friend.  Take your side, split it in two open-faced sections and only use a light amount of condiments.  Rather ask for tomato slices and greens.  Don’t do potato salad or a side dish with a mayonnaise base.

Don’t eat at the Chinese Wok restaurant.  Their food is LOADED with salt, and no nutrition.

Try a piece of veggie pizza, thin crust.  Don’t eat the crust.

If you can, throw a couple of apples, no-salt almonds, even low-calorie energy bars.  Pack a sandwich and throw it in your bag. 

If you can steer clear of the high salt, high sugar options when you are shopping, you won’t experience that glucose crash mid-afternoon where you feel that you’ve walked 20 miles.  Be sure and have fun with your good buys!

Some of these foods are extremely sugary but they taste so good, it is hard to resist sometimes
